Patrick Mahomes completed less than half of his passes in the first half for only the third time in his career but rallied to finish 27 of 47 for 302 yards and two touchdowns. "We did not give up any explosive plays the first half".

The Los Angeles Chargers indicated throughout the offseason that they did not want to rush rookie quarterback Justin Herbert into the starting lineup, but the first-round pick only ended up riding the bench for a week. "At that point in time, I thought I would give us a chance to extend the game and it didn't work out".

"I think unfortunately since we lost, I can't say too well but there's definitely things I did poorly and there's going to be things I'm going to look at on film and watch", said Herbert following the game.

Mahomes was 18 of 25 for 222 yards and a touchdown on the final four drives, which resulted in a TD and three field goals.
